The Xojo issue tracker doesn’t allow most robots to view the ticket link contents and this prevents the forum software from generating a useful preview of the issues links. Frustrated with having to open a new tab I set out to build a better solution
I’ve built Issues Linker, a menubar / trayitem app that will convert issues tracker links (or plain old ticket numbers!) into forum-friendly Markdown links with proper titles. Copy a link or ticket number to your clipboard, click the ladybug icon, and select Convert! When you hear the click your link is ready.
The menu item “Convert Clipboard Link” should be available. Select this item, and the app will make a quick request to pull the name of the ticket. When it’s done, a markdown formatted link is replaced onto your clipboard and you’ll hear a little “click” sound.
